Career Connection Centers

Goodwill Career Connection Centers provide absolutely free job readiness services to anyone who is unemployed or underemployed. Our team of career connectors work one-on-one with individuals to give them the skills needed to confidently pursue a career.

The path to pursuing a career begins with finding a direction. Our team helps individuals determine what kind of job is right for them. We have resources for every step along the path, like building a resume, preparing for interviews and learning computer skills.

Goodwill Career Connection Centers, located in Des Moines, Johnston and Newton, are also happy to refer individuals to additional services provided by other nonprofits in the area. All services through Goodwill Career Connection Centers are offered at zero cost to the individual, thanks to the funding support generated through Goodwill of Central Iowa’s 19 retail stores.

GOODWILL CAREER CONNECTION CENTERS HIGHLIGHT

Valera was working as a beautician and part-time bartender when she visited the Goodwill Career Connection Center in Newton seeking a full-time position that offered quality pay and benefits. She worked on her resume, cover letters and interviewing skills, but she was discouraged and concerned about barriers she felt were holding her back. After attending a Goodwill CCC Hiring Fair, Valera met the team at Graphic Packaging and was offered a position in June 2017 that she still loves today.
